A Simple and Gentle Life . . .

"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is. Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"
~Tasha Tudor~

Tasha Tudor lived such a gentle, simple life.  Uncomplicated,  uncluttered and simply dressed in every way!  Happy Birthday to a very sweet and gentle soul, may your legacy, your grace and your way of life not be forgotten! 

Clarice, at Story Book Woods , celebrates Tasha Tudor Day, with wonderful food and fun - please go visit her!



  1. Hi Hon! Thank you for celebrating Tasha!

    And oh my, I didn't know where I was, when I came over. Did you ever change your blog look! Super pretty and Autumn-y. [Is it a word? ,-)]

    Gentle hugs...

  2. Well said Barb, Happy Tasha day !!! Clarice

  3. She was a lovely woman. I'm going to check out the link you provided, thank you.

    Have a wonderful, and relaxing weekend Barb! ~Hugs~ :)

  4. Oh, I also meant to say that I love your header photo...beautiful!

  5. Hi Barb,

    Tasha was someone I would have loved to know. I've enjoyed many of her books. Such talent!

    I love your header and the return to this beautiful background!


  6. I love that photo of Tasha. I don't think I've ever seen that one. We have blue skies today but it is cool. I've got all my windows open, but I'm wearing a big wooly sweater. I was just thinking it does kind of feel fallish today. Linda

  7. I know that we are related in someway other than through our children. Perhaps we were sisters in the Pre-existance? I need more time with you. I always feel so uplifted by your thoughts and the change in your blog look and your post brought a sense of peace to my soul. I like the simple times; and I think our children and grandchildren don't even understand what that means.
    Love and hugs to you! LeAnn

  8. Barb,

    Great minds think alike! Happy Tasha Tudor Day to you!


  9. I would have loved to know this beautiful lady. Her photos remind me of my sweet grandmother. I love Tasha's artwork, so talented. My son and I had a homeschool lesson about her this past week. Happy Tasha Tudor Day!!!

  10. You are so wonderful. I am so blessed to have you as my sister. When I need some solice in my life, you are it, whether it be in person or at your blog. I am so blessed. Thank you. I love you.
